The ballad The Endless Trail (1980) is to be found on several cd's off the band. In 1983 the label Lark (a part of the Inelco imperium) even decided to make it as the only single of the band.


The idea arised to make a cd with all these versions, even with live versions which has never been released. Listen to the history and making of the ultimate ballad through the years in 10 versions. As a bonus: a videofilm of 2002 and a karaoke version with the music of the different instruments + lyrics and scores.
The cd has the titel "The endless trail - the uiltimate ballad" and can be ordered in our webshop. You can listen to some soundbytes as well.
